There are so many makeup companies now in the market that it can be a little overwhelming to choose what’s right for you. Finding that perfect mascara or nail polish that also gels with your values to be cruelty-free can be quite the challenge. Lucky for you, we have tried and tested almost all vegan brands and created a list of our top favorite cruelty-free makeup companies out there. While you are at it, don’t forget to include the cute GUNAS Bloom makeup bag in your wish list. It’s a must have for every vegan fashionista and beauty addict. Did we mention that is also has a heart warming poem printed at the back for the bunnies? A sweet reminder and a feel good feature that’s perfect for your essentials and tools inside.
TOOLS OF TRADE
Speaking of tools, let’s start with the makeup brushes. Makeup brushes are commonly made from squirrel, mink, sable, horse or goat hair. Many makeup brushes are manufactured in developing countries where there are few or no animal welfare regulations. There’s absolutely no reason to use these, as there are several high quality synthetic options available. If you’ve not heard of Dose of Color, check out their beautiful brushes that are a must have for your tools collection. You’ll feel like you are brushing your cheeks against a soft cuddly kitten. They also have a gorgeous line of vegan lip colors and eye shadows that we adore. All goodies are Made in USA.
LET’S GET STARTED
Prep your skin with a fantastic vegan vitamin infused spray from Urban Decay. For quick fixes use their tinted skin balm that not only provides a light cover but also heals and repairs the skin. Elf cosmetics makes lovely blush powders that go with all skin tones. We love edgy and Kat Von D lipsticks are just the right fit for our #gunasgirl. Tarte makes the best vegan and cruelty-free mascara in our opinion.
